The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

Chapter 115: That Sinking Feeling
Author's Notes: Okay, here's the first of 8 drabbles written for Week 4 of Challenge 288 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100. By the time I get all these posted I'll be onto the next challenge, whatever that turns out to be. Hope it won't be quite so inspiring, I need to ge caught up wih my posting!

Summary: Jack and Ianto’s romantic weekend away turns into a bit of a washout.

Ianto should have known a romantic weekend away with Jack at a hotel famous for their waterbeds was a recipe for disaster.

The first night was heaven. So was much of the first day, actually. Ianto found himself twisted into positions he never would have imagined possible, perfectly supported by the water filled mattress and was so inspired, he tested Jack’s flexibility to its limits too.

Everything was going swimmingly; a poor choice of words, in retrospect.

Jack’s ever-present Vortex Manipulator must have caught on the mattress, because suddenly they were sinking as water fountained over them.

Ianto groaned. “Fuck!”
